Local Tourist -- Port Huron

Port Huron kind of breaks the bounds of "local", but the Local Tourist needed to get out of town for mental health purposes.  So, Laura, Peter, and I went to Port Huron on Saturday.  First we walked around the vacant campground at Lakeport State Park and walked along the shore of Port Huron.

After Peter skipped some rocks, we moved on to the city of Port Huron and walked around the Blue Water Bridge area.  We saw the monument to young Thomas Edison who lived in the area for a while and sold newspapers and candy on the railroad from Port Huron to Detroit.  As a bonus, we also got to see a Great Lakes Freighter pass from the St. Clair River northbound into Lake Huron.

A shout-out goes to Meijer and Wal-Mart for giving people a place to use the bathroom; and a plea goes out to the state of Michigan to open up the state parks.

Here are some photos from the day.
